  HOW TO EAT WATERMELONS  

When you slice a Georgy melon you mus' know what you is at
    An' look out how de knife is gwine in.
Put one-half on dis side er you--de yuther half on dat,
    En' den you gits betwixt 'em, en begin!
        Oh, melons!
            Honey good ter see;
        But we'en it comes ter sweetness,
            De melon make fer me!
En den you puts yo' knife up, en you sorter licks de blade,
    En never stop fer sayin' any grace;
But eat ontell you satisfy--roll over in de shade,
    En sleep ontell de sun shine in yo' face!
        Oh, melons!
            Honey good ter see;
        But we'en it comes ter sweetness,
            De melon make fer me!

                             Frank Libby Stanton.
